Information on audio mixers

An audio mixer takes audio signals from microphones, line level sources and a wide range of media players. The purpose of a mixer is to combine these audio sources into a single audio signal. It is important to choose a high quality mixer otherwise your sound quality will suffer.

Inline mixers

We use a lot of inline mixers for installations where the operators are not trained sound engineers. Also they can be used if there is a requirement for "Switch on and leave it" operation.

Typically this kind of mixer would benefit a place of worship, village hall, or portable system built into a single case.

An inline mixer will have a simplified control layout with rotary volume controls on the front. The connections are usually on the rear.

Small Audio mixers

A small mixer can be used where an inline mixer would be too basic and a large mixer to complex.

Example uses include home recording or video editing studios where channel EQ, or auxiliary sends For monitors are required. A small mixer might have between 2 to 6 microphone inputs with additional stereo inputs.

Small mixers usually have rotary controls.

Mixing Consoles

A 10 channel mixer (or larger) will usually require a competent person to use them. This person can guide less experienced operators in how to use them.

Professional mixing desks often include the following features:

  • Phantom Power - provides power to condenser microphones.
  • Aux Sends - Allows you to send a separate mix to stage monitors or hearing loops.
  • Digital Effects - Provides a range of audio effects that can be applied to input channels.
  • Signal Routing - this allows the sound engineer to group channels together on mixers with sub groups.
  • USB Audio - An audio interface built into the mixer to allow connection to a computer via USB.

audio powered mixers also include a built in amplifier to directly drive passive speakers.

A studio mixer will allow multi-track recording so that separate tracks can be recorded. These tracks can then be mixed into the finished recording. Each track can be a single input channel or a group of channels.

Well known makers include Allen & Heath, Yamaha, and Soundcraft, we supply both digital and analogue mixing consoles.

A great mixer for use in churches, performance venues and by touring groups are the QU Series of digital mixers.

One of the benefits of digital audio mixers is that they use light weight cable to connect to stage boxes. This is instead of the old fashioned heavy audio multi-core cables.
